ManyVal is a series of international workshops on the logical and algebraic aspects of many-valued reasoning. The 2015 workshop served as the official meeting of the ERCIM Working Group of the same name.
The aim of the workshop series is to bring together both established and young researchers sharing an interest for a specific topic. Accordingly, each edition has a sharp focus. The attendance is limited in order to facilitate close and informal interaction. There are no parallel sessions and contributed talks are allocated ample time.
The chosen topic this year was modal and first-order many-valued logics. The workshop took place at Hotel Les Sources in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, from 11-13 December 2015. The program committee was chaired by George Metcalfe (University of Bern) and the organizing committee was chaired by Denisa Diaconescu (University of Bern), with assistance from other members of the Logic group at the Mathematical Institute.
There were 28 participants at the meeting from 10 countries. The program included invited talks by Itaï Ben Yaacov (Université Claude Bernard, Lyon 1, France), Marta Bílková (Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic), Xavier Caicedo (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia), Petr Cintula (Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic), Rafael Peñaloza (Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy). It also included eleven selected contributed talks of half an hour.
Sponsors of ManyVal 2015 included the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM).
Past editions of ManyVal took place in Gargnano (2006), Milan (2008), Varese (2010), Salerno (2012), and Prague (2013).
